Product Description

Since high carbohydrate levels (found in grain and rich alfalfa hay) are often restricted in IR diets, it is important to provide essential mineral nutrients, necessary for nutritional support. D-Carb (Balance) is designed for diets consisting of approximately 15-20 lbs of Timothy or Bermuda grass type hay, no grain, or small amounts and/or similar low carb feedstuffs (beet pulp) to provide calcium, phosphorus, vitamins, and trace minerals that would be lacking, given the restriction of grain and alfalfa-type hay (both high in carbohydrates). Hay is normally administered at a rate of 1.5% of ideal body weight, Example: 1,000lb horse x 1.5%= 15lbs hay (Hay should not contain more than 10% starch/sugar). Over starvation may often cause greater increase in Insulin Resistance. Given many variables and conditions, consult your veterinarian for specific ration and administration levels. D-Carb (Balance) is pelletized and flavored to enhance palatability.

A multi-vitamin/mineral supplement formulated for horses predisposed to Insulin Resistance and/or an inability to metabolize high carbohydrate levels. Palatable pellet form with a rice bran base. Chromium and magnesium may help regulate blood sugar; contains 4 mg of chromium and 5,330 mg of magnesium per 4 oz. serving. Does not contain potassium.
